Has your passport expired?
Will it expire within 6 months of the date of travel?
Did you buy it from a bloke down the pub?

If the answer to all of the above is no, then your passport is just fine.

Incorrect information.

For the visa waiver program (rules are different for Canadians/Bermudians and those with U.S. visas)
http://travel.state.gov/visa/temp/wi...hout_1990.html


"All VWP travelers, regardless of age or type of passport used, must present machine-readable passports; previous one-time exemptions for first-time VWP travelers without MRPs ended June 26, 2005. In addition, depending on when VWP travelers’ passports were issued, other passport requirements will apply:

* Machine-readable passports issued before 10/26/05 – no further requirements
* Machine-readable passports issued between 10/26/05 and 10/25/06 – requires digital photograph printed on the data page or integrated chip with information from the data page
* Machine-readable passports issued on or after 10/26/06 – requires integrated chip with information from the data page (e-passport)"


The U.S. does not have a "6 months validity rule" for British passport holders:
